Reprieve in signal distribution row
07 June 2013, 12:03
Nairobi - The government will float a tender for the third digital signal distributor licence to accommodate local investors, ending a stalemate between the State and the Media Owners Association.
In a statement to Business Daily, Fred Matiang'i, the Cabinet secretary for Information, Communication and Technology said the tender would be tailored for local investors who missed out when the other licences were issued; one to a Chinese company and the other to the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation.
Matiang’i added that the process would be transparent and within the law, as the fallout over the digital signal distribution had led some media owners to freeze content from the Pan African Network Group (PANG).
